Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? A couple of small ones for so far for me including a My Little Pony magazine from an Instagram comp, a can of Red Bull in a freebie offer and a Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish from an online comp. Spent most of the weekend outside buying bits for our camping trips, children’s parties, selling at car boot sales and having fun in the countryside with kites, footballs and Frisbees. Don’t feel like we have been indoors much his weekend and as a result I feel rather disorganised for the coming week. It’s the last full week of work and school with no external commitments, but then there is just one more week after that before the children break up for the summer – eek!
For those of you that don know we have just bought our first tent and camping accessories, with the hopes of starting to take the children away camping as often as we can. It feels like a lovely way for us all to spend some quality family time together, with no TVs, housework or distractions. To be fair we will probably go to holiday parks where there is nightly entertainment and Wi-Fi, but you have to start somewhere! Do you enjoy getting out in the countryside and camping? Maybe you like using bikes, scooters ad outdoor equipment? My girls love taking their scooters when we go away, and it is good practice for them too.
If you are a fan of the outdoors, or just enjoy day trips during the summer you are going to love our exclusive competition this month! Tell me in the comments below what your summer escape plans are and you could be winning a £50 Halfords voucher to spend on whatever you want! We plan to be out camping as much as we can across the Island, and to just enjoy all the wonderful nature and countryside around us. How would you spend your voucher - maybe you would like to get some new safety gear for your family bike enthusiast, or use it to purchase some new camping accessories, or even just to buy some car maintenance essentials such as oil, windscreen wash or any of the other little bits that soon add up when you are using the car all the time. This competition is for registered members of The PrizeFinder only, and you will need to be logged into your account to leave me a comment. One entry per person and the competition ends at 23:59 on Sunday 12th July 2015 with a winner being chosen at random shortly afterwards – good luck everyone!

We have been in English Heritage for years but this year are going to go over to National Trust... We need some on the road essentials like a camping stove so we can
enjoy our trips out
I will be going on a cycling holiday with my husband, the first after a break of quite a lot of years.
Fun fun fun with the family merlin pass I won!
I would use the voucher to get a Tom Tom we want to take our westie to the beach to paddle in the sea, as she has never seen the sea. We usually get lost so a Tom tom would be wonderful, going to head towards Bournemouth with a picnic and hopefully find a dog friendly beach.
I'd put it towards some chairs to use when going camping.
Learning to ride a bike, in my twenties :p No summer holiday for me unfortunately - unless! I win one like I did in 2013; it was my first trip abroad,in Italy, and I won it thanks to this very site :)
My plans are lots of beach visits. Would use the voucher for some car essentials x
I would buy some new accessories for my Cycle To Work scheme bike in preparation for the Cycle to Work Day due soon which I have signed up for! xx Fingers crossed xx I will win!
We plan to go on a last minute camping trip to shell island sometime in august
We are planning on going to South Wales with family. Aiming to build the biggest sandcastle on the beach.
We will be escaping to the south of france in a mobile home. Would live to take our bikes with us, so would put the voucher towards a bike carrier for the car.
My escape plan is camping on the isle of Eigg, watching the eagles and catching a few sea trout for supper!
I escape at summer by spending time with friends in Devon
We are planning a camping trip in France so this would come in so handy
camping in the back garden x
My daughter's bike has just broken, so it would be nice to put it towards a brand new bike
My summer escape is a fortnight of two weeks in Cornwall with no mobile phones and internet!!!!
My summer escape plan is taking my girls camping for the first time
Hubby and I love to walk so we spend as much time as possible walking our local country lanes, woods or visiting the coast and walking for miles along that. One of our favourite walks is Eastbourne to Seaford past beachy head such a wonderful place to enjoy the views and outdoors and all for free. We would spend the Halfords voucher on a dashcam after having a very scary road rage incident this would enable us to feel a lot safer out and about on the roads and report these idiots on the road to the police should it ever happen again.
I've been lucky enough to win 3 nights away over the last 3 weeks (in two separate comps!) so we're going to use them in august to take the kids to chessington and legoland =)
My Summer Escape is having a well Earned weekend away from the husband and kids and going Fusion Festival with my sister :-)
My summer escape plans are going to see my mum in great yarmouth in aug
This will go on a roof rack
(if I win that is)
We've already had our summer holiday, so will be spending the school hols with beach days, play dates, and the kids will no doubt be helping their dad with the Harvesting - the joys of having a farm!
We are staying in a caravan in Cornwall next month ( I can't bring myself to camp!) and we really need a SatNav to help us get there! I would use the voucher to buy one
My summer escape will be spending time with my family at the beach in Worthing where I live
We joined the National Trust earlier this year and plan to visit lots of them this Summer
Hope to go off camping in Cornwall so would likely spend voucher adding to the camping equipment collection
First I am going to Morocco, then I will be volunteering at a young peoples programme and then off to tenerife. After that it is University!!
Relaxing on a beach in Alcossebre x
